MTN8 Quarter-Final Starting XI: Orlando Pirates v SuperSport United 11 August 2018

MTN8 Quarter-Final 

Teams: Orlando Pirates v SuperSport

Date: 11 August 2018

Venue: Orlando Stadium

Orlando Pirates get their MTN8 campaign underway against defending champions SuperSport United in a quarter-final clash on Saturday night.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h30.

The Buccaneers have raised expectations for silverware, after finishing an impressive second in the league last season.

The Soweto giants started their league campaign with a 1-1 draw against Highlands Park, before grinding out a 1-0 win over Chippa United in midweek.

On the other hand, Matsatsantsa a Pitori did not have the best starts in league after suffering a 2-0 defeat to Cape Town City in the opening weekend of the 2018-19 campaign, although they returned to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over AmaZulu.

In desperate need of refreshment or reinforcements, Tembo could unleash new signing Zambian forward Ghampani Lungu who was handed his debut against AmaZulu on Wednesday night.

Nothing could separate these two side when they met last season, as they played out goalless draw in both Absa Premiership clashes.

 
Here's how they line up:
 
Pirates: 40. Mpontshane, 4. Jele, 6. Shitolo, 23. Maela, 35. Thopola, 32. Mntambo, 20. Mlambo, 27. Motshwari, 45. Pule, 12. Shonga 17. Mulenga.
 
Subs: 16. Mabokgwane, 33. Munetsi, 37. Mbekile, 3. Lorch, 42. Maphangule, 7. Mahachi, 31. Gabuza.
 
SuperSport: 30. Williams, 28. Mokoena , 3. Khumalo , 4. Daniels , 14. Bhasera, 8. Furman, 6. Letsholonyane, 13. Phala, 19. Rusike, 17. Lungu, 7. Grobler.
 
Subs: 33. Pule, 29. Gould, 25. Fleurs, 24. Mbule , 15. Lakay, 11. Keene, 16.Modiba.

I knw we wont win it on penalties because our keepers are handless interms of penalties, you cant allow supersport s game to penalty whilest u know Ronwen williams is always a hero on penalties,no player at pirates that i was trusted in all who take penalties,i predict another empty season

Yhooo, this team is relatively new. We cannot afford to have a completely new lineup every game. There must be continuity in combinations. Even at the subs' bench there is no regulars. The team that played the first league game should have been retained.
